 Lynette Swanepoel is a South African artist, living on a farm at the foot of Mt. Libanon in the Eastern Free State, South Africa. She was employed as senior lecturer in Graphic Design at the Vaal University of Technology Vanderbijlpark for 25 years. She then moved to a remote rural area between Bethlehem and Fouriesburg, near Clarens. Lynette works in a variety of mediums, but often returns to soft pastel, charcoal and pencil on 100% cotton. She works almost solely from photos she had taken herself. Her repertoire includes oil paint, watercolours, charcoal, lino work and digital media. Lynette is currently occupied as visual arts teacher for the seniors at a local school.




Contact the artist via Keith McFarlane (Portraits Africa) at editor@negativeentropy.net who will provide an introduction. Artist and buyer are free to negotiate on both subject and price While the artist has provided a guide-price or price indication, the first step in any commission is that artist and buyer agree the price, size, subject and materials of the composition and its delivery date. Portraits Africa will then request the agreed commission fee from the buyer, and on receipt of that fee will advise the artist to start work. The fee will not be released to the artist until the work has been completed and delivered to the buyer. Should a dispute arise between artist and buyer, it is Portraits Africa that will adjudicate. For the service prospectus, Terms & Conditions, see Commissioning a Portrait.
